Hello, fellow humans! The Oscar nominations come out on Tuesday, January 24, so this week, we decided to make our predictions for the six major categories (sorry, screenwriters) and discuss films we wish would be nominated, even though they have no chance. Tuesday should be a good day for La La Land, Manchester by the Sea, Moonlight, and maybe even Mel Gibson? We also have two Reboots this week, beginning with Martin Scorsese’s Gangs of New York, and then digging into Gus Van Sant’s To Die For.

Let us know what you think @griersonleitch or griersonleitch@newrepublic.com. As always, leave us a review on iTunes with the name of a movie you’d like us to review and we’ll discuss it on a later podcast.
